Granny Lip, Granny Sallie's mother - sharon Phillips 7Jan 2010

I can tell I'm not the only "pack rat" in the family.  I still have some of the letters and cards that Granny Sallie sent me over the years.  I also have the last Christmas card that Granny Lip, Granny Sallie's mother gave to me.  She used to put a card on the Christmas Tree for each grandchild--there were 8 in all.  The card contained a pack of Juicy Fruit Gum and a quarter.  I thought I was rich.  Thanks for the letter.
